Was Nash robbed of the MVP award?
Tue, May 15, 2007

Dirk Nowitzki ended the two-year MVP reign of good friend Steve Nash on Tuesday, picking up the trophy for a great regular season dimmed by a post-season flop.

He received 1,138 points, including 83 of the 129 first-place votes. Nash of the Phoenix Suns followed with 1,013 points and 44 first-place votes. Nash, the league's MVP his first two seasons after leaving Nowitzki and the Mavericks to join the Phoenix Suns, was trying to join Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell as the only players to win the award three years in a row.

Nash on Dirk: 'he's very deserving'

Nash was robbed.

Look what Nash has done for the Suns in these playoffs and look what Dirk did in the playoffs. Biggest upset in NBA playoffs and Dirk gets less then 10 points in the most important game of the year.

Nash had better numbers than his previous 2 MVP seasons....Phoenix is not the same team with him out of the line up, his presence wins games, can't say the same about Nowitzki. Dirk had good personal stats but Nash is by far more 'valuable'.

Anyone who believes that Nowitzki should be the MVP over Nash is delusional. If you need proof check the playoffs and ask yourself why Dallas is missing

No question he was robbed. It was more a case of not letting him have 3 in a row than truly evaluating this year. Nash makes the Suns the team they are. He defines how they play. Nowitzki is just a great shooter on a good team.

some might think he got robbed, other might think he didnt, but the point is, the better player won. yes, Steve should have won it, but Dirk did lead his team to the most wins this year. The MVP doesnt mean anything really. it is just an award that the critics like to give away. and to think Kobe was one of those for the MVP race its insane because an MVP is spose to make his team and everyone around him better. Kobe did not do that. he had to do all the scoring. Dirk and Steve on the other hand did just that. made people better. and the 2 of them should be awarded it this year

I think the MVP should be appraised on a full season including playoffs. Steve Nash is the MVP because whenever he is not in the lineup, Phoenix loses. Dirk failed in the first round of the playoffs, ans Steve is keeping the fight alive for Phoenix. There is no doubt in my mind that if Steve Nash wasn't a two time winner, he would have won on most ballots this year.
